Re: Front Collision/Pedestrian Warning

If you search for images of "BMW i3 dash," it's the illuminated green circle button directly below the hazard light switch, center stack.

On U.S. models, this will only be found on cars equipped with the tech package.

From what can be seen in the Parts diagrams, the engine mount ... were updated again in july 2017....

Hmmm.... Mine was built on Slurpee Day 2017 -- July 11th. I wonder if it has the revised mounts?

Re: Carrying Cargo 'n Things in Our i3's...

Today's load involved 90 miles of driving to pick up eBay and Craigslist purchases -- a drywall hoist and a 40A charger. The Clipper Creek EVSE is larger than I expected; I hope it fits in the alcove I intend to put it in. I'm pretty sure I measured everything out months ago. We'll see. The drywall ...

Re: I3 not following delayed off-peak charging

You sound well versed in this already, so these may be obvious suggestions you've already considered: - is it possible you mistook the initial handshake for "charging?" This is the brief period after you plug the car in and it begins a short cycle of charging to assess what level of charge is availa...

Ya know, Simone lives right across the bay from me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKv_N0IDS2A Actually, I have a cargo bike I use as a pickup truck and I'm in the process of electrifying it! :) Capacitywise, it gives the i3 a run for the money. http://www.booboodog.net/images/i3/cargo-bike.jpg htt...

Re: Blanc dashboard with flashing indicators

Besides the turn signals, are the other "hard" indicators working, such as the parking brake, seatbelt, traction control, and cruise control icons?

Re: Carrying Cargo 'n Things in Our i3's...

This morning saw a quick trip to pick up five sheets of quarter-inch drywall and a couple of 2x4s. The 2x4s are great for bridging the gap between the crossbars. A third one up the middle would be ideal. As I've mentioned in previous posts, the 48" crossbars are a few inches too short for tying down...

Re: voice command

Huh... I use mine to send texts, read my texts, navigate, play music, open apps, call people, Google search random stuff. I'm betting it's more an issue or setting with your phone, probably not the car.

Re: Connecting to the i3's Secondary Charge Points, Are They There?

Yeah, I get that Jim, but the receiving wireless coil has to patch in to the i3's charging structure somewhere downstream of the rectifier, where real current is fed in to charge the battery. I'd like to take advantage of that point of connection to "hard wire" my OUC in and eliminate the charging p...
